Blade manufacturing begins

Skywheels rotor blade systems were prominently featured in the May issue of Sport Aviation Magazine. Innovation column author Beth Stanton interviewed six people closely involved with the restart of Skywheels manufacturing and recent test flights.

In the article, Beth weaved together present-day work with 35-years of history that has made the high-performance rotor blade system a favorite with gyroplane pilots. The Skywheels article is located on pages 16 to 18 of the May magazine. The monthly publication is distributed to 240,000 EAA members.

Beth's article, titled "Classic Concept Meets Modern Manufacturing," captured the essence of bringing back into production one of the best gyroplane rotor blades ever made for the niche market. Beth commented she's heard from readers the article illustrated how new techniques and technology can rejuvenate an earlier production item to a state of advancement and how tighter tolerances make a better product.
